Visitors to the exhibition can raise a toast properly at the Getty Center’s Restaurant with traditional Austrian fare prepared with a light, sustainable, and locally grown twist. Throughout the run of Gustav Klimt: The Magic of Line, on view until September 23, 2012, enjoy a deliciously prepared Niman Ranch pork schnitzel with Yukon Gold whipped potatoes, escarole, Parmesan, arugula, and rosemary honey mustard for $20 at lunch and $26 at dinner. Enjoy an Austrian beer tasting flight for $7.
Gustav Klimt: The Magic of Line is the first major museum exhibition featuring Klimt’s drawings, featuring dozens of loans from Vienna’s Albertina Museum, many of which have never been shown in the United States. And after all, a guy doesn’t turn 150 every day. Doesn’t that call for a beer and schnitzel?
The Getty’s Restaurant offers full service in an elegant setting with views of the ocean and the Santa Monica Mountains. Lunch hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m. Dinner hours are Saturday 5:00–9:00 p.m. and through September 21 the Restaurant is also serving dinner on Fridays until 9:00 p.m. Brunch is served on Sunday from 11:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m. Restaurant menus change seasonally. Reservations are recommended. Call (310) 440-6810, or make reservations online.
